Unfortunately not, as it stands the only thing the PS3 is region free on is the games. All regional BD and DVD are locked to your region. Even if there was a hack to play region 1 dvd's on a region 2 ps3, sony would patch it up as soon as it was made puclic.

However you could use region free dvd's which will work on the PS3. There is plenty of software for PC which will copy your existing DVD's and remove the region lock. However, I am not sure on the legalities of it.

Have an aussie ps3 trying 2 play dvd and it says region code incorrect how do i fix this


The PS3s' DVD and Blu-Ray player is region locked. This means that your Australian PS3 can only play DVD and Blu-Ray movies made for the region Australia is in or are region free (region code 0).

For DVD's, Australia is region code 4.
For Blu-Ray, Australia is region code B or region code 2.

Although this doesn't help your current problem, the PS3 is region free for PS3 games (you can play games from any region).

To work around this, I propose either ripping the DVD to your computer, then burning it onto a different DVD or streaming the DVD directly from your computer to the PS3. Streaming is definitely the better bet if you have more DVD's from another region.

To rip and burn your own copy, use a blank DVD disc and DVD burning/ripping software such as Nero.

To stream to your PS3, check out the following:
PS3 Media Server (my personal favorite) for PC
TVersity for PC
MediaLink for Mac

Enjoy your movie (hopefully)!

When i try to play a dvd on my ps3 its telling me region code not found


hi there,
the ps3 will only play dvd's from your region(e.g. region 1 usa, 2 europe etc..) So depending on where you got your dvd, if it's not the region as your ps3, the ps3 will not play the dvd. however the ps3 will play blu-rays and games from anywhere in the world as it plays region-free blu-ray discs. I know it's a pain in the neck, but you will have to find a region free dvd player to play that dvd. Hope this helps.

Is there any way to make my ps3 region free? ive brought some dvds, that have turned out are region 1, but my ps3 isnt.


Currently, there are no means to make the PS3 region free. Best thing you can do is copy the DVD onto your PC and burn a region free DVD from it.

PS3 BLU-RAY DVD PLAYER REGION FREE


This is because you bought the ps3 from america, it will not let you play anything you buy from europe, i had this problem when i was in germany too i had bought the ps3 in michigan and tried to play in germany and got the same exact error code. i just ordered all my games from amazon. but eventually bought a new ps3 from their region. i dont know why sony does this i personally think it is to stop illegal burning via the internet.

My mom sent me a music DVD from South Africa. I live in Perth WA. The DVD will not play on my DVD player or Playstation 3. It states: The region code is incorrect?


you are playin a dvd drom a different region.
For example Australia and RSA have different DVD regions. this page will show you the regions of different places. http://www.regionfreedvd.net/player/sony.html
You could get a region free dvd player, OR you could install "slysoft any dvd" to your PC as this lets your PC dvd drive run region free.

Basicly certain systems are backwards compatable. Otherwise you will have to mod it, which is not recommended unless you know what you are doing. As far as region free I do not believe sony allows you to do so, you would have to hack it for that feature as well.
